    What’s Jerome’s? What’s Nugent’s? What’s Huddlestone’s? Until we get a rumour of anything it’s pure guesswork based on absolutely zilch and we have a transfer thread people keep checking over and over where nothing is happening. Which gets annoying. Even if you want to speculate, then there’s a disco group in the main section? Now stop goading 🙂 Also...priceless!

    Priceless 😘 Also as there’s no rumour currently can we get this all into the Chris Martin Disco thread?

    Chris Martin - Player Discussion Thread.

    Although I don’t necessarily agree about the diving bit (there’s a difference between diving and going down under contact to point out to the ref that you are being constantly fouled), I do think there’s a point in this little comment, is that when one player is a top player within one managers system it for whatever reason winds up a section of support. If I’m 100% honest, and I can say it now he’s gone, but I didn’t like Vydra. That was in part because I don’t think did enough for the team as a no.10 and left the midfield and Nugent/the CF too much work to do, but also that he was Rowett’s golden boy and I thought it really got my back up. Especially the Nugent/Vydra ‘super partnership’ stuff, I found it especially horrible. Point is. I think sometimes we all end up not liking a player with little reason, even sometimes the best ones.

    Chris Martin - Player Discussion Thread.

    Yeah what is it with these strikers wanting to win games of football by wanting the ball when they have space and in position? Or wanting to wind up their opponents (also thought he was lazy and didn’t pressure enough 🙄)? God these ruddy strikers, give me the ones who are half a yard behind all the time because they run around aimlessly. NOW THATS A STRIKER, SHOW ME THAT YOU RUN AND HOLD NO EMOTION Give me strength. Also how many laid those comments at Vydra when you can lay all the stroppiness, trying to win free kicks etc at his door too? Or does he just look like he has a cheery face?

    Chris Martin - Player Discussion Thread.

    Don’t worry I won’t accuse! Can fully accept it maybe is the time to move on, as much as I am personally against it, it’s just the reasoning some give on here is ludacris. Yes, there’s a reasoned opinion you can have about him going and for the sake of his career I can see why. But the “he doesn’t press, lazy, falls down, I heard he doesnt work on faults or whatever else I can shake at him” brigade is the most poorly argued, and lacking of any basis i think I’ve come across on here*. It all boils down to personal interests, but on a forum you need a little more than that. *except the Keogh threads...maybe
  7. how the heck does one player alone not ‘press’ enough? You press intelligently as a team, that’s not down to one player running about a bit more than others. It’s about positioning and intelligence and about doing it in unison. Pressures doesn’t mean you run around aimlessly! I despair at the anti-Martin lot, yes his time at Derby may be over soon, but the lack of sensible input/objectivity/factual information makes the debate laughable.

    But when you put it over that opinion on a public forum then you must be prepared to back it up! FWIW, I do agree with you in a way, but it's an argument you can put towards the vast majority of championship player with limited ability. Not enough players work at their faults, hence you get players who are amazing at one attribute but struggle with other aspects. I'd even lay those complaints at the doors of Vydra, Ince and many others who have made a move to the Prem. To lay it in the door of Martin feels harsh, and not looking at that situation objectively stands to prove you were looking to give one player a kicking. Shame as you had a great point if used correctly.

    The problem is though, aren’t you expecting people to put blind faith in your opinion? As you aren’t backing up what you are saying with ought factual? Doesn’t that have its own question over maturity?

  12. Don’t get my hopes up! But to be Frank (boom boom!) in the current set up all three could have chance, it just feels too unlikely at this stage

    Were Leeds That Good Or ,,,,

    Not sure, one of the things I really enjoyed last week was our willingness to shoot from outside the box a bit more. If nothing else it starts pulling defenders out a bit more. We didn’t get the attacking right today, which in contrary to what I just said, was partly because Leeds defended well overall in closing gaps, but also we kept making the wrong decisions. Passing when they could have gone themselves or being greedy when others were in better decisions. Hopefully it’s teething problems but it felt like we panicked going forward today

    Leeds will be good when you let them be. But I actually thought when we were chasing down and putting them under pressure they soon become pretty average. As I saw it, play tight and get at their defence and that would possibly hold the key to it as the did not look comfortable when they had no room and would start punting it. So yeah, good but not unbeatable. We just played them at a poor time for us. Once the league settled and one or two teams starting picking up their play I think they’ll start dropping points
